Triffic is raising funds to fight Covid-19!
In times of unprecedented global health situation, the blockchain world is trying to help as much as possible. The creative Triffic team is a leading example - although their augmented reality app is designed to award users for moving about, now they have quickly adapted it to be used even when most countries have imposed severe restrictions and even lockdowns. Triffic users can now still test the app and receive reward beacons directly to their location without risking to go out. And the best part is that the Triffic team will donate funds on users’ behalf to the World Health Organization for its fight against Covid-19 - a worthy cause of the team which also was covered by Coindesk!
